Judge to hear challenge to NY casino referendum

Posted: Updated:

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - A lawyer will accuse the state of using public money to hoodwink voters into approving a referendum on Gov. Andrew Cuomo's effort to expand casino gambling in New York state.

Eric Snyder of Brooklyn will be in state court Friday to challenge the referendum that was reworded to promise benefits for New Yorkers, including jobs, lower taxes and more school aid. The additions were negotiated by the Cuomo administration and legislative leaders. The wording doesn't mention any potential drawbacks to more casinos, such as crime and other social costs.

The state will argue Snyder's lawsuit was filed too late.

The state didn't post the unexpected rosy version of the referendum online until Aug. 23, a week after the deadline to file a lawsuit.

Snyder claims that's unfair and that the changes were made in secret.
